writing the program is not the problem but storing videos is the problem
Re: Cost Of Developing An Application Like Youtube In Nigeria by frankdupree: 5:54pm On Jan 31, 2016
An application like YouTube costs millions, do not be deceived, probably 500-1000's of developers. CDN's, hosting, platforms and other little services you might not be aware of. Send me a pm if you have a project like that in mind.

As i said before to To right the program to stream your videos and audio is not the problem but the the storage is

AS a programmer i do know that every process is a file some temporary or permanent
if your dont know about this then you should consider looking for another work coz coding is not your thing


back to topic :

every mail,chat you do on the internet is physically stored (surprise moda Fer)
so do the videos you watch on youtube

i dont know much about networking but i do know to build some thing like youtube here is the step you should follow:

1. you need mount your local drive to be able to access it over internet like 1Terabyte
and to do this the computer that is mounting it should be on 24/7 maybe that why google choose solar power
and here in nigeria i bet u not fit am nepa wahala solar stuff cost die

2. design your own database and your need a good hashing function so that you can get a video from your drive at O(1) time if your understand


3. Some multimedia library or design your own it easy in c or c++ which you will use for streaming

4. buy a domain name and point it to your local nameserver

and bro you just created african version of youtube

@OP, why youtube?
its better you point out the features you need from youtube and start from one at a time. Youtube is massive, and you need lot of cash to develop such.
If you got 1 million dollars you can contact me for further consultation.

This can be done, but not like youtube way.
So your budget for this project should be around $500-$800.

This is a bandwidth intensive project. Are you sure you have the necessary server infrastructure or funding to be able to support this?

You will arrive at no significant place like this, first of all identify the new thing you want to bring on board that YouTube doesn't do or have, else you will need lots of money as in money to advertise it to ppl before they can use it. As for the construction you will need to employ programmers that will continue work on it, this kind of project is not what you just finish like that, you will need the same set of ppl you used and even add more people, just budget 10milion for a start first pls note am talking from experience

Do you know how much radio and TV advert cost?
Re: Cost Of Developing An Application Like Youtube In Nigeria by guru01(m): 10:13am On Feb 10, 2016
cbrass:

Nope, i just its a start up, their main audience are not those on radio and tv na, and beside the budget should be for just building the app.
Anyway am not arguing with you, am just curious to know why 10m for a start.
